Event

Urban Playground Chamber Orchestra: Czech Masters
Smetana: Má Vlast: Vltava (The Moldau)*
Martinů: Nonet
--
Dvořák: Cello Concerto in B Minor*
SOFIA NOWIK, Cello

*Premiere of chamber orchestration by Thomas Cunningham

Please join us for a concert of Czech Masterworks. Smetana's set of six Symphonic Poems entitled Má Vlast (My Homeland) colorfully depict aspects of the countryside, history and legends of Bohemia. Vltava (The Moldau) is the second piece of the set, and traces the route of the river from two small springs past various scenes and locations, until it vanishes into the distance and the Elbe river in Germany.

Martinů's Nonet (1959) follows the tradition instrumentation dating back to Louis Spohr in 1813 (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet Bassoon, Horn, Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass), but uses a Neo-Classical idiom. It was one of his last compositions, and is playful, episodic, and frequently rhapsodic.

Dvořák's Cello Concerto (1895) was the last solo concerto he wrote, composing it only 2 years after his Symphony No. 9 "From the New World." However, it required consistent prodding from numerous cellists. Dvořák once said the cello was a fine orchestral instrument but totally insufficient for a solo concerto. However, his colleague's pressure paid off, and Dvořák did end up writing a concerto for cello, while in New York, no less.

The Dvorak Concerto and Smetana's Vltava are presented here in premiere chamber orchestration.
